But until then, I'll leave you with a recent favourite entry of mine from one of my favourite blogs. (Probably only interesting if you're a mom).
Enjoying the Small Things
Protecting your child vs. teaching him/her how to deal with disappointment. I don't like to sugar coat things too much, so I really enjoyed this entry.
It was particularly interesting after watching "Waiting for Superman" and not being surprised at the statistic having to do with US schools having such low achievement, yet scoring highest in 'confidence'...lol.
"...although America is falling behind in math, our kids are first in confidence. American students get terrible math scores compared to their international peers, but they think they’re great in math—in fact, they have more confidence in their math skills than students from any other country."
